No internet access with local IP and gateway


Jan 26, 2016

First I want to say thank you for Proxmox!

I have a "little" problem with internet access for my CT (LXC as I am running Proxmox 4.1)

proxmox-ve: 4.1-34 (running kernel: 4.2.6-1-pve)
pve-manager: 4.1-5 (running version: 4.1-5/f910ef5c)
pve-kernel-4.2.6-1-pve: 4.2.6-34

lvm2: 2.02.116-pve2
corosync-pve: 2.3.5-2
libqb0: 0.17.2-1
pve-cluster: 4.0-31
qemu-server: 4.0-49

lxcfs: 0.13-pve3
cgmanager: 0.39-pve1
criu: 1.6.0-1
zfsutils: 0.6.5-pve7~jessie

on my debian 8.2 Server (OVH Image)

When I define a "real" IP all is working, but I want to have some TKL Things installed with private IPs and proxying - here it is not working as expected...

I went through
and installed the bridge vmbr1 with on the host and and as gw on the clients

But I cannot ping or even from within the containers...

I tried searching but maybe I am using the wrong search terms for this... Sorry.
Ma someone link me to a solution?
